What’s by my Door?

Bongo finding a package by the doorWhen I got home from taking my person for a walk on my trails I found something by the door.

I would have picked it up and brought it in the house, but it was a little high for me to reach.

Well, I could have reached it – it would have been kind of like counter surfing – but I get in trouble when I get caught doing that, and with my person standing right next to me I thought I’d better not.

So I didn’t.






I let my person bring it into the house.

It has my name on it?

This is exciting!

What is it? What is it?

Come on person, hurry up!

Open it for me.

I got treats?

This is the best day ever!

Hey, I know where these came from.

They came from my friend Rumpy.

He said he was going to send me some more.

Woo woo! Rumpy’s the best!

But there’s one thing wrong with these.

They don’t do me any good inside the package.

Now we’re talking!

Package from Rumpy

Bongo with his head in a boxThis is so cool!

A package came for me today.

For me!

Not for my person, or for my younger person.

Not even for the cats.

It came for me.

My friend Rumpy had a contest on his blog awhile back.

I entered it and I won.

I won!

So what’s inside this package?


I can’t wait to find out.

Bongo with his head in a box full of red, white, and blue crinkles

Hey wait a minute.

There’s nothing in here but a bunch of red, white, and blue stuff.

What would I want with that?

Bongo and the box

I give up!

What am I gonna do with this package?

And why would Rumpy send me this stuff anyway?

I bet he doesn’t spend his time playing with colored, crinkled paper.

Wait, what?

There’s something else in this box?

What is it?

Bongo with a bag of treats


This is awesome!

Rumpy, you do know what I like after all.

Thanks Rumpy.

A Good Day Gets Better

Bongo on the trailI headed out on my trails, enjoying my afternoon walk, and thinking that it can’t get better than this.

Well, maybe if my person had brought some treats along it would have been better.

But it was pretty good.

And suddenly it did get better.







Because not one, but two of my girlfriends came running up to me.

I hadn’t seen them in awhile so it was a great reunion.

And for once I was happy that I hadn’t had any treats.

Because treats might have affected my senses.

There’s nothing better than Eau de Dog.

Best Friends

Bongo in a red bandannaLast week my people left me in the dog hotel and went travelling without me.

I’m still pretty upset that they didn’t take me with them, but at least they brought me this bandanna – and some treats too.

They visited a really cool place, and it was only by chance that they stopped by.

But I think it was the best place they went to.

Here’s how they ended up there.

They were driving into Kanab, Utah and the whole road was closed for construction.

They didn’t even have one lane open so cars could eventually get through – nope, they closed that road down.

But right near where my people had to stop was the entrance to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, so they went there.

And they said it was the coolest place.

I know it’s got to be since they bought me this bandanna and some treats there.

Best Friends Animal Sanctuary is a no kill shelter and it’s nothing like the dog jail my people found me in.

The animals have lots of room to run and play and they get lots of good care and loves too.

All kinds of animals live there. Everything from horses, birds, rabbits, cats and dogs and…

Pot bellied pig

Pigs. This is Rupert.

My person also got to meet Yoyo.

Brown pit bull

Yoyo doesn’t look very friendly in this picture, but my person said when she held out her hand to Yoyo, she came over and kissed it and turned out to be one of the most loving dogs she’d met.

Hey, wait a minute. What about me?


That place must be really cool though because even the wild animals hang out there.

Two wild turkeys

I bet it would be fun to chase those turkeys.

But even though that place looks great, and hardly like a dog jail at all, I wouldn’t want anybody thinking I belonged there.

So I put on this sticker that my person got when she was there.

Unwelcome Visitor

Bongo looking like he doesn't know what to doSome creatures are so nervy.

I was minding my own business today, being the perfect dog that I am, when a squirrel took over my tree and started chattering.

Those pesky squirrels!

Not only is that squirrel hanging out in my tree, but he’s trying to taunt me with food.

I see that treat he’s hiding in his mouth.

He knows I see it too.

I know how those squirrels think.

Squirrel in a tree with a peanut it it's mouth

See, that squirrel’s got a peanut in his mouth.

And he’s not even going to try to hide it anymore.

He’s going to flaunt it.

He’s hoping I’ll get upset and try to go after him for his peanut.

But I’ve got other plans up my sleeve.

You might as well give up you pesky squirrel.

I’ve got your number.

You’re done for now.


So just to show that squirrel that I mean business I’m going to get my own treats.

I went out into the kitchen…

Dog treat shaped like a squirrel

And I ate the squirrel.

Walking with Bunnies

Two Bunnies on leashesWait a minute! Wait just a minute! This is a dog blog. What are those bunnies doing on my blog?


My person left me for a long time today. And when she got home I smelled something on her.

It smelled kinda, sorta, a little bit familiar. Then I realized why.

It smelled like those wild bunnies that I chase sometimes on my trails. Or at least I try to chase. It’s kind of hard when you’ve got a person attached to your leash.

But even though the smell was like my trail bunnies, it wasn’t quite the same.

So my person had to admit it. She’d been petting bunnies. Bunnies on leashes!

She even had pictures to prove it.

Two bunnies on leashes

This got me really worried. What if my person decided she’d rather take one of those bunnies on a walk instead of me? What if she left me home and took a bunny?

My person said those bunnies were softer than me. And she said they had a job working as therapy bunnies in a nursing home.

And my person said those bunnies didn’t get into mischief like me.

That settles it! Who would want a pet that didn’t get into mischief? How boring would that be?

I was still a bit worried though that I might be ousted; until my person said she got me something to make up for petting those bunnies.

Different shaped dog cookies


And they look like cars, and bones, and cats, and pesky squirrels.

I already ate the pesky squirrel.

Hey Scratchy, I’m going to eat the cat next.

Do they have any cookies that look like bunnies?
